How Healthy Is Your Heart?

Lifestyle related factors like high blood pressure and high cholesterol, as well as smoking, poor diet and a lack of exercise can increase a person’s risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke.

 

To increase awareness of heart health and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, Public Health England’s (PHE) Heart Age Campaign is encouraging adults to complete the One You Heart Age Test.

Available to do quickly and easily, the Heart Age Test will tell you how old your heart is (in comparison to your physical age) in under three minutes. It also provides you with tips on

how you can lower your heart age as well as ways to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

 

The Heart Age Test:

  • Tells you your heart age compared to your real age.
  • Explains why it’s important to know your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers.
  • Gives advice on how to reduce your heart age.
